ChaCha is wearing me down

I've been with ChaCha for about 2 months now and I just have no desire to continue with this. I literally have to force myself to get it on and do it. It's annoying because back when ChaCha was paying more, I couldn't get in. Now that they're paying less I was finally able to pass. I make more doing silly "get paid to" sites than ChaCha. I get on every here and there to make about 4 dollars (which takes 80% of the day to reach because you're only paid 2 cents per question and it's been constantly slow)just so I can keep that First Internet Bank active. I want to close the account but since that Online bank is a real bank, I may have to keep it open for a certain amount of time before I can close it without being charged. Ugh.....I make more doing Mturk....I make more just talking and having fun here. Yeah, I'm definitely quitting ChaCha. Anyone else in the same position with it or have gone through it?

HI SilverSnow! Can't say that I feel the same way since ChaCha is my main income source. When I first started yeah it was difficult because I was not making very much but now I am faster and my refferals help too. I also use gpt but it's not a very reliable money maker since your work does not always credit. Hang in there and eventually you will find something you like doing, happy mylotting!

Yeah, that's basically it. I'm trying to find something that I can earn but enjoy. I just learned that answering questions is just not enjoyable for me and if I dislike my work, I'm more likely not to work well. I don't have any problems with offers crediting on GPT's. Since years back when I first started them, all of my offers credit quickly but I do know of many that have problems with them so it's not too great for them.

Well if it helps you might want to check ABOUT website for companies that hire employees to work from home. They have just about every kind of work on a company directory list from call centers, jury trials, writing, translation, medical transcription, etc... I found a few companies that sound interesting and might try them out. Since I can't include link here just go to ABOUT and then in search box type in 'work at home jobs by company directory' hope this helps!

May I know what kind of a site this is. Whether we have to ask a question or we have to answer the questions. How much can we earn from this site? I am from India. Whether Indians are allowed or not. What is the mode of payment? Please respond.

Hi mallu30, ChaCha is a mobile text service that answers questions from users on their cell phones. Guides are paid for answering those questions. Unfortunately it is only available in the U.S.

I have tried getting in with Cha Cha but could never pass their stupid tests even though I felt I did fine.

I have only been with ChaCha since the 17th of this month, and yes it can get tiring, but I do enjoy it. It can get frustrating at times though, when I am not sure what they are really wanting, so I will just have them clarify what they want. I am trying to get $6 a day, and yesterday, I did more than that. I do enough questions to do $2 worth, and then I will take a break, and go back and do another $2 worth, and take another break, then finish up at night. I do much better if I don't try to do it all at one sitting, as I do get overwhelmed and then I just make way to many mistakes. I do like the new setup though, as it is much easier to answer the question, especially on the finders page. I could do those all day long as I do enjoy them, and I find them really quickly. I got started with Chacha, because of my daughter, as I am her referral. I am glad I did start with with it too, as it will help with my income, and in this day and age, it all helps, that is for sure. Good luck to you though, and happy mylotting.
